Best for families? Kia Soul and Cadenza

The 2017 Soul and Cadenza have received 2017 “Best Cars for Families” awards from U.S. News & World Report.

Vehicles were judged on safety, seating and cargo volume, reliability, and the availability of family-friendly features. U.S. News & World Report selected Soul from 20 competitors in the Compact Cars category, while Cadenza was chosen from a field of 11 competing vehicles in the Large Car category.

Kia Soul was noted for outstanding ergonomics and tech features that make it a great choice for families. “The ride height is neither too low nor too high, making it easy for both little kids and grandparents with limited mobility to get in,” said U.S News & World Report Autos managing editor Jamie Page Deaton. “Parents of teen drivers can get some peace of mind with Soul's UVO system, while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto keep families connected with limited distraction on the road. Plus, its styling makes it a real standout in the school pickup lane.”

U.S. News & World Report similarly praised Cadenza. “The same features that make Kia Cadenza luxurious for adults make it a great choice for families,” said Page Deaton. “Rear sunshades keep backseat passengers cool so they can ride or nap in peace. UVO teen-driver controls make it easier to hand the keys over to new drivers, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™ make it easier to access common smartphone functions without having to learn a new operating system.”

“We’re thrilled to receive these great awards,” said Orth Hedrick, Kia vice president, product planning, “because they speak to the effort we put into creating vehicles that families will love. It’s part of Kia’s global commitment to offer attractive, reliable and dynamic vehicles with tremendous value. Being awarded Best Cars for Families by U.S. News & World Report is testimony to those efforts and we couldn’t be more proud.”

The hip and popular 2017 Kia Soul is available in three trim levels, including the new 201hp turbocharged Exclaim4, and as a battery electric version, the Soul EV. Cadenza is all new for 2017 and is winning accolades for its elegant design and luxurious amenities, and is offered in three trims.
